Parking on London Road

The Parish Council has been informed by the police that cars parking on the London Road have been keyed, had their tyres let down and notes have been placed on their windshields.   All of this is unlawful and if the police were to catch the person responsible they would be dealt with robustly.    Vehicles are not breaking any laws parking on London Road: furthermore there are benefits as parked cars act as natural traffic calming and will reduce the speeds of the vehicles travelling through the village as they have to stop to give way to oncoming traffic.    If anyone has any genuine concerns please follow the proper channels and contact the police, rather than commit criminal offences.
